[Carl-Gustav Werner]

Carl-Gustav Werner is a mathematician at Sweden's Lunds Universitet. He created metafont code for runes (2001-2014) of all kinds, including Scandinavian, Continental, Gothic, Anglo-Frisian, Normal, Short-Twig, Staveless, and Medieval. He explains: Several fonts exists for typesetting runes, for a list, see here. Most of them are rather limited. [...] I try to cover most varieties that ever existed. Since I prefer LaTeX for document writing, I have created the font with Metafont and set up a package for easy use in LaTeX. CTAN download site. [Google] [More]  ⦿

[Juan-José Marcos García]

Juan-José Marcos García (b. Salamanca, Spain, 1963) is a professor of classics at the University of Plasencia in Spain. He has developed one of the most complete Unicode fonts named ALPHABETUM Unicode for linguistics and classical languages (classical&medieval Latin, ancient Greek, Etruscan, Oscan, Umbrian, Faliscan, Messapic, Picene, Iberic, Celtiberic, Gothic, Runic, Modern Greek, Cyrillic, Devanagari-based languages, Old&Middle English, Hebrew, Sanskrit, IPA, Ogham, Ugaritic, Old Persian, Old Church Slavonic, Brahmi, Glagolitic, Ogham, ancient Greek Avestan, Kharoshti, Old Norse, Old Icelandic, Old Danish and Old Nordic in general, Bengali, Hindi, Marathi, Phoenician, Cypriot, Linear B with plans for Glagolitic). This font has over 5000 glyphs, and contains most characters that concern classicists (rare symbols, signs for metrics, epigraphical symbols, "Saxon" typeface for Old English, etcetera). A demo font can be downloaded [see also Lucius Hartmann's place]. His Greek font Grammata (2002) is now called Ellenike.

He also created a package of fonts for Latin paleography (medieval handwriting on parchments): Capitalis Elegans, Capitalis Rustica, Capitalis Monumentalis, Antiqua Cursiva Romana, Nova Cursiva Romana (2014), Uncialis, Semiuncialis, Beneventana Minuscula, Visigothica Minuscula, Luxoviensis Minuscula, Insularis Minuscula, Insularis Majuscula, Carolingia Minuscula, Gothica Textura Quadrata, Gothica Textura Prescissa, Gothica Rotunda, Gothica Bastarda, Gothica Cursiva, Bastarda Anglicana (2014) and Humanistica Antiqua. PDF entitled Fonts For Latin Palaeography (2008-2014), in which Marcos gives an enjoyable historic overview.

Alphabetum is not Marcos's only excursion into type design. In 2011, he created two simulation fonts called Sefarad and Al Andalus which imitate Hebrew and Arabic calligraphy, respectively.

Cyrillic OCS (2012) is a pair of Latin fonts that emulate Old Church Slavonic (old Cyrillic).

In 2013, he created Cuneus, a cuneiform simulation typeface.

Paleographic fonts for Greek (2014) has ten fonts designed by Marcos: Angular Uncial, Biblical Uncial, Coptic Uncial, Papyrus Uncial, Round Uncial, Slavonic Uncial, Sloping Uncial, Minuscule IX, Minuscule XI and Minuscule XV. These fonts are representative of the main styles of Greek handwriting used during the Classical World and Middle Ages on papyrus and parchments. There is also a short manual of Greek Paleography (71 pages) which explains the development of Greek handwriting from the fourth century B.C. to the invention of printing with movable type in the middle of the fifteenth A.D. He wrote a text book entitled History of Greek Typography: From the Invention of Printing to the Digital Age (in Spanish; second edition, 2018). See also here and here. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Amanye Tenceli: Tengwar Calligraphy

Tengwar calligraphic page by Måns Björkman from Sweden. Free fonts made by him include Sarati Eldamar (2005), Valmaric Eldamar (2006), Tengwar Scribe, Tirion Sarati (2002), Tengwar Parmaite. Plus many calligraphic notes. He explains: This page is dedicated to the beautiful writing systems that in Tolkien's works derived from the continent of Aman. They are often collectively called Tengwar, although strictly speaking this is wrong, Tengwar being the name of Feanor's writing system (Feanors Tengwar) but not of the Sarati, Rúmils script (the Tengwar of Rúmil).

From Encyclopaedia Britannica: System of writing used in the ancient Middle East. The name, a coinage from Latin and Middle French roots meaning "wedge-shaped", has been the modern designation from the early 18th century onward. Cuneiform was the most widespread and historically significant writing system in the ancient Middle East. The origins of cuneiform may be traced back approximately to the end of the 4th millennium BC. At that time the Sumerians, a people of unknown ethnic and linguistic affinities, inhabited southern Mesopotamia and the region west of the mouth of the Euphrates known as Chaldea. Many of the cultures employing cuneiform (Hurrian, Hittite, Urartian) disappeared one by one, and their written records fell into oblivion. The same fate overtook cuneiform generally with astonishing swiftness and completeness. [Google] [More]  ⦿

De Nada Industries
[Mike Allard]

Mike Allard (DeNada Industries, Gainesville, FL) is the designer in 1992 of many early shareware fonts. The text provided by DeNada: Founded by a grumpy fellow when some software installation actually required a company name in the registration line. DeNada Industries has grown to include one employee (aka Mike Allard). A producer of typefaces in their early years, De Nada has slowly undeveloped over the years to include the odd Theatre Flyer design for out-rageous amounts of money. Their advertising budget is so severely limited as to preclude your being aware of their existence except by sheer accident. DeNada Industries is one of the slowest growing non-corporate entities in all of North America encompassing a wide variety of activities including: Typeface creation, flyer design, theatrical scenic and lighting design (in conjunction with The Shumway Brothers Moving Company) and a wide variety of other activities that defy specific categorization despite the heroic efforts of our staff. Dafont link. His typefaces:

  • Script typefaces: Lauren Script, Heather (updated in 2000 by Mario Arturo), Kavaler Kursive, Machine Script, Juliet, Kelly Brown, E-Brant Script, Miss Brooks.
  • Sumdumgoi: a famous oriental simulation face.
  • The Celtic font Viking.
  • Blackletter typefaces: MikeAllard-PerryGothic.png, Kelly Ann Gothic.
  • Brush typefaces: Grauman, Striped-Brush,
  • Idiosyncratic typefaces: Alfred Drake, Joe Perry, Kurt Russell, Will Robinson.
  • Camelot De Nada (hairline serif).
  • Calligraphic: Romeo DN.
  • Scimitar2.

Digital Type Foundry
[James Banner]

Digital Type Foundry is James Banner's (extinct) Seattle-based foundry that produced typefaces such as Angelic, Bamberg-Initials, Bamberg, Burton, Caxton-Initials, Daggers, Enochian, FetteFraktur, Fraktur, Futhark-Gothic, Futhark, Hebrew, Hermetica, Titling-Ornaments-1 and Turkish, around 1991-1992. Some fonts can be downloaded for free at Fontspace. He wrote: I started making fonts in 1988 and still produce work, although as it became more difficult to upload my work or share it using the University of Michigan FTP server, I haven't released much. Most recently, I issued the Geoffroy Tory initial letters as a Type 1 font and separately as EPS files as Freeware. I've produced 20-30 fonts since the DTF Volume Three bundle package came out.

The foundry disappeared. The licensing today is unclear.

Feorag's Place
[Feòrag NìcBhrìde]

Nice designs by Feòrag NìcBhrìde (or Feòrag Forsyth) from Edinburgh, Scotland. Her Mac TrueType and PostScript fonts are mostly reproductions of historic type. Styl, Styl Round, Astradyne and DaySquareCut are futurist in inspiration. Chapbook and Chapbook Italic are based on 17th century type and Vespasian is taken from a late 7th century manuscript. Symbats and Orkney Runes are of particular interest to occultists. Flgheadh, my first shareware font, makes the creation of knotwork rows as easy as typing three characters which happen to be next to one another on the keyboard. Viking Runes from the Orkney Isles, Taisean (2010, angular uncial), Accelerando (2009, nice simple techno face), Day Square Cut (1997; based on lettering designed by Lewis Day, some time around 1900), Cianán (Mac type 1 font based on an old Irish manuscript, 1998), Astradyne (based on the font used on Ultravox's Vienna LP from 1980), Symbats (1997-2008, a Pagan dingbats font), Innsmouth Plain (2011, hand-printed), Skelett (2011, blackletter), Maeshowe (2014, Futhark runes), Orkahaug (2014, a grungy version of Maeshowe), Lindberg (2007-2014, a beer bottle font), Lindberg Caffeine (2014), Springmarch (2014). In 2016, he designed the Victorian typeface Whittier.

Flansburg Design

FontStructor specializing in rune simulation typefaces. He made Viking Runes (2012) in styles called Younger, Middle, and Elder. He writes: VIKING is a false-historical font evolving from Elder Futhark Runes. This runic typeface is based upon the ancient Germanic symbols later adapted by the Goths, Anglo-Saxons, Vikings, The Third Reich, and within Fantasy genera, depicted as Dwarven Runes. ELDER VIKING is almost an exact interpretation of Elder Futhark plus a few extra characters corresponding as a best fit to the basic 26 upper-case Latin characters. MIDDLE VIKING is the second generation evolution Rune based upon Elder Futhark. Designed as a semi-cryptic, visually interesting type but intended to be almost-readable as a Latin equivalent (unlike ELDER VIKING), MIDDLE VIKING contains numeric runes and basic punctuation. YOUNGER VIKING is the third generation rune type which is a fully modern interpretation of Elder Futhark. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Henry Warwick

New Jersey native who lives in San Francisco. He states: "Over the years I've had the good fortune to be very involved with photolettering and type design. In the 1980's I set headlines, letter by letter by letter, on a VGC Typositor at Phil's Photolettering in Washington DC. The desktop computer quickly destroyed that entire industry, and that is how I became involved with computer graphics. In the early 1990s, I designed type for FontBank, and consulted for several other type companies, including Microsoft and Galoob Toys. It's nearly impossible to make a living in type design these days, as the industry was basically done in by a combination of legal precedents and rampant piracy. Having worked on "conventional" / Wester / Roman fonts for so long, I've acquired a preference for unusual or obscure fonts or alphabets. I am always available for type design work or consulting." His designs (not downloadable) include Coptic Chelt, Fruthrak Sans, Ojibway Futurae, Cyrillic-Helv-Flash-8pt, KTR-katakana10, Celestia, Daggers, Enochian Times and Nugsoth. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Hungarian runes

Omniglot's page on Hungarian runes. I quote: Hungarian runes (Székely Rovásírás) are are thought to have descended from the Turkic script (Kök Turki) used in Central Asia, though some scholars believe the Hungarian runes pre-date the Turkic script. They were used by the Székler Magyars in Hungary before István, the first Christian king of Hungary, ordered all pre-Christian writings to be destroyed. In remote parts of Transylvania however, the runes were still used up until the 1850s. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Johan Winge

As a Swedish student at Uppsala University, based in Knutby, Johan Winge created the Tengwar Annatar family (2004) using metafont and pfaedit (now called FontForge), SV Basic Manual (2004, sans serif monospaced pair of typefaces), and Tengwar Naive (1997-2004).

In 2013, he went commercial, and started the Johan Winge type foundry out of Uppsala. His commercial typefaces include the round monospaced techno retro-futuristic typeface Cubiculum (2013) about which he says: Cubiculum is a clean revival of a kind of font that was widely available for different electronic typewriters in the 80s and early 90s. Typically, each manufacturer had their own slightly different design, and also their own name for this font: commonly known as Cubic, it was also marketed as Techno, Report, Block, and Quadro.

  • Wordless Script (2019, at Sudtipos). A penmanship script with weathered outlines. Sudtipos writes: Wordless Script is the font of choice for writing those things that go beyond words. Based on the connected-scripts of the late 18th-century England, this typeface preserves the irregular finish and stroke gestures of the pointed nib. It is, so to speak, a personal rendition of the English roundhand as originally executed with the bird's quill. Imbued with a rococo, neoclassic, romantic spirit, Wordless Script radiates the gallantry of a time when the celebrated douceur de vivre that Talleyrand was so fond of was still alive and well; echoes of which still haunt us in our eclectic 21st-century, that now has once again come to appreciate again these magnificent styles of old. Wordless Script [...] is meant to be read with the eyes only or to be whispered into someone's ear.

Kinetic Plasma Fonts (was: Cannot Into Space Fonts)
[Robert Jablonski]

Cannot Into Space Fonts is the free font studio of Robert Jablonski (b. 1991), who is based in Indiana. Before this studio, Robert used to make fonts at FontStruct under the alias Rabbid Bahh. Mew Too (b. 1991, Indiana) is co-lead designer for Cannot Into Space Fonts. Jasper (b. 1996) joined in 2015.

The fonts include first and foremost the large geometric sans typeface family Nordica (2014) and the large grotesque family Hussar (2014). Other typefaces: Warszawa (2016: a wide display sans), Camo3 (2016, camouflage pattern fonts), Armata (2016, sans), Bolshevik (2016, constructivist), Rabbid Highway Sign II (2015, a sans, followed by IV in 2016), Rocketfuel (2015, by Mew Too), Charger (2015, a sans by Jasper; see also the 2016 typeface Charger Pro), Kabina (2015), Just Breathe (2015), Polan Stronk (2015), Apple Storm (2015), Numb Bunny (2015), Hi (2015, with Mew Too), Hussar Motorway (2015, an arrow font), Hussar Szturm (2015), Hussar Print (2015), Happy Time (2015, transitional; done with Mew Too and forked from TeX Gyre Termes), Distraught (2015), Curly Kue (2014), Filament (2014), Thicker Than (2014), BigWriter (2014), SuplexDriver (2014), Loogie Hawk (2014), Squared Hand (2014), Polan Writings (2014), Waterfire (2014), RDJ Hand (2014, a pixel typeface), Bwahh (2014, FontStruct font), DinKursivschriftEng, DinKursivschriftGhostEng, DinKursivschriftLeftEng, PolanCannotInto (2014, +DIN, +Shqip), PolskiDINKursivschrift (2014), Rabbid-Highway-Sign (2014, FontStruct font).

Typefaces from 2015: Warsaw Gothic (a modification of a font by The League of Movable Type, 2009), Sztylet Bold (not a "Cannot Into Space Fonts" font, this heavy geometric sans is a derivative of Hussar by "Crazy Dave" at Plus One Fonts), Trueno (by "Jasper"; an extensive sans family based on Julieta Ulanovsky's Montserrat (2014)), Passageway (based on an Ascender design from 2010), Fog Sans (a derivative of Intel's Clear Sans from 2012), Asimov (a derivative of Roboto), Rocketfuel, Be Happy (a smiley doodle font by Mew Too), CSF Camouflage Kit (dingbats), Stormning Aesir (an outlined version of Stormning, with Mew Too), Blink (a condensed sans in nine styles, by Mew Too), DIN Kursivschrift (an update of the earlier font), Stormning (a Norse runic font co-designed with Mew Too; followed in 2016 by Ny Storming), Analytik, Through The Black, Ruined Serif, Warp Storm, Give A Hoot (2016: sans family).

Kök Turki alphabet

Writing system used by Turkic-speaking peoples in Central Asia from the 6th to the 8th century AD. It is sometimes called Kök Turki runes because of the resemblance of its letter forms to those of the (Germanic) runic alphabet. The script occurred in two forms, monumental and cursive, and was written either vertically downward or horizontally from right to left. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Kris Alans

Designer of the remarkable free display typeface Alanesiana (2017)C: Alanesiana is a font created in accordance with the idea to read the text in a slightly insecure form, and supports exactly 5650 characters. Each character has its own character, looks different from the rest, but all are made in a similar style and have a similar thickness, so the text still looks consistent, making it perfect for longer texts as opposed to many other decorative fonts that tire the reader. What is important Alanesiana supports not only Latin alphabet but also Cyrillic, Greek, Hebrew, Armenian, Georgian and phonetic and mathematical symbols as well as some emoticons and other symbols, alphabets such as Coptic.

  • Motorway (2015), a companion typeface to Transport, the British road sign lettering. This is an extension of an original design by Jock Kinneir and Margaret Calvert: The Motorway alphabet was created for the route numbers on motorway signage, and is taller and narrower than the accompanying place names and distances which are printed in Transport. However, for Motorway Jock Kinneir and Margaret Calvert created only the numbers 0 to 9, the capitals A, B, E, M, N, S and W, ampersand, slash, parentheses and a comma. So, although the lettering made its first appearance on the Preston bypass in 1958, K-Type Motorway is the first complete typeface and contains all upper and lower case letters, plus a full complement of punctuation, symbols and Latin Extended-A accented characters. As with the Transport alphabet the starting point was Akzidenz Grotesk, Motorway taking inspiration from condensed versions. Changes were mainly driven by a quest for legibility, resulting in some reduced contrast between horizontal and vertical strokes, and Gill-esque straight diagonal limbs on the 6 and 9, and high vertex for the M.

Logos Bible Software
[Eli T. Evans]

Company located in Bellingham, WA, which is involved in ancient languages. Eli Evans developed some fonts for Ugaritic, a Semitic language written in cuneiform, in use around 1300 bc in the city of Ugarit in modern Syria. The fonts, called Zebel Open, are part of a commercial Ugaritic package. Here we learn that he designed Gotisch (2003) with letters representing the Gothic alphabet, as written by Wulfila and presumably as used by the Goths (pre-uncial). This was followed by a bold version, Gothic 1. He also created the runes font Futhorc. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Odd Einar Haugen

Odd Einar Haugen (b. 1954) is professor of Old Norse Philology (norrøn filologi) at the University of Bergen, Norway. He was born and grew up in Lunde, Telemark, but moved to Bergen in 1973 when he began his studies at the university. He obtained his PhD from that university in 1992 and became professor there in 1993. At the Department of Scandinavian languages and literature at the University of Bergen, Norway, he maintained interesting pages on rune fonts. He wrote: The two Rune fonts, Gullskoen and Eggja cover the Viking age and younger Scandinavian Runes (Gullskoen) and the older 24 rune Germanic Futhark + the Anglo Saxon runes (Eggja). Both fonts will be available as Postscript fonts and as TrueType fonts, and both will be available for Apple's Macintosh and for MS Windows. His typefaces:

  • Gullskoen (1996). The font Gullskoen contains approx. 150 characters from the younger rune alphabet: the main forms and some variants of the long twig runes, the short twig runes, the staveless runes, and the Nordic medieval runes (including forms from Gotland, Iceland, and Greenland). The font does not represent a single futhark, but contains runic forms from a wide geographical area and from a period of several hundred years. The largest number of variants are Norwegian. ullskoen is named after one of the buildings on the wharf (Bryggen) in Bergen. After the fire in 1955, a large number of inscriptions in the younger runes were found in the grounds here.
  • Gullhornet (2001). The font Gullhornet contains 109 characters from the older rune alphabet, both common Germanic runes and Anglo-Saxon and Frisian ones. In addition to the approx. 40 standard characters in these futharks there are approx. 60 variants and 9 signs for punctuation and diacritical marks. Gullhornet is named after one of the best known Danish inscriptions in the older runes, found in 1734, later stolen and lost, but documented through drawings and copies.

Old Italic

The script of some ancient (8th to 1st centuries BC) dialects of Central Italy, which are a subdivision of the western group of Indo-European languages spoken in Italy. These dialects included Etruscan, Faliscan, Middle Adriatic, North Picene, Oscan, South Picene, and Umbrian. The Old Italic script dialects show some similarity to Celtic and, to a lesser degree, Germanic. The Germanic runic alphabet was derived from one of these alphabets by the 2nd century AD.

Omniglot's page on the Orkhon alphabet. I quote: The earliest known examples of writing in any Turkic language were found in the Orkhon river valley in Mongolia in the 19th century. They date from the early 8th century AD and the script in which they are written is known as the Orkhon alphabet. Inscriptions dating from the later 8th century AD in a slight variant of the Orkhon alphabet, known as Yenisei or Siberian runes, have also been found around Yenisei and other parts of Siberia. Because of a superficial resemblance to the Runic alphabet, the alphabet is also known as Orkhon or Turkic runes. This resemblance is probably a result of the writing materials used - most inscriptions are in hard surfaces, such as stone or wood, and curved lines are difficult to inscribe in such surfaces. The Orkhon alphabet is thought to have been derived from or inspired by a non-cursive version of the Sogdian script. By the 9th century AD, the Orkhon and Yenisei alphabets were replaced by the Uighur alphabet, which developed from the cursive version of the Sogdian script. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Bio and photo.

In-house fonts made in 2008 include Circled Caps, the Yule family (Regular, Klein Regular, Light Flurries, Heavy, Klein heavy, Heavy Snow, Inline; all have Neuland influences). Kegler / P22 created a 25-set P22 Civilité family in 2009 based on a 1908 publication from Enshedé, the 1978 English translation by Harry Carter, and a 1926 specimen also from Enshedé.

P22 Declaration (Script, Signatures, Blackletter, 2009) is based on the lettering used in the 1776 Declaration of Independence.

At ATypI 2004 in Prague, Richard spoke about Vojtech Preissig. Speaker at ATypI 2010 in Dublin, where he presented Making Faces: Metal Type in the 21st Century about which he writes: This film has the dual aim of documenting the almost-lost skill of creating metal fonts and of capturing the personality and work process of the late Canadian graphic artist Jim Rimmer (1931-2010). P22 type foundry commissioned Mr. Rimmer to create a new type design (Stern) that became the first-ever simultaneous release of a digital font and hand-set metal font in 2008. At ATypI 2011 in Reykjavik, he showed Making Faces.

Typefaces from 2014: LTC Archive Ornaments (Richard Kegler and Miranda Roth).

Typefaces from 2020: Showcard Script (by Terry Wüdenbachs, based on an original of Beaufont at the Hamilton Wood Type Museum, custom designed by the Morgan Sign Machine Company of Chicago).

Typefaces from 2021: P22 Glaser Houdini (a layerable family, after Glaser's Houdini from 1964), P22 Glaser Babyteeth. Kegler writes: In 2019, P22 Type Foundry met with Milton Glaser (1929-2020) to initiate the official digital series of typefaces designed by Glaser in the 1960s and 70s. P22 Glaser Babyteeth is the first family released in the series. Milton Glaser's inspiration for his Babyteeth typeface came from a hand painted advertisement for a tailor he saw in Mexico City. He was inspired by that E drawn as only someone unfimilar with the alphabet could have concieved. So he set about inventing a completelly ledgible alphabet consistant with this model. P22 Glaser Babyteeth was based on original drawings and phototype proofs from the Milton Glaser Studios archives. Over the years there have been many typefaces that borrowed heavily from the Glaser designs, but these are the only official Babyteeth fonts approved by Milton Glaser Studio and the Estate of Milton Glaser. The solid and open versions are designed to overlap for two-color font effects and can even be mixed and matched for multi layer chromatic treatments. In 2021, he published the 3d art deco shadow font P22 Glaser Kitchen which is based on Big Kitchen (1976).

Peter Baker's old English page at the University of Virginia
[Peter S. Baker]

Peter S. Baker, an English professor at the University of Virginia, offers free TrueType and PostScript fonts. these include:

  • Anglo-Saxon Caps.
  • Beowulf-1 (1995, a pseudo-Gaelic face; BeowulfOT dates from 2018).
  • Bury Caps (2014, free at OFL). This decorative typeface was inspired by the display capitals in the 12th-century Bury Bible.
  • The elegant Carolingian typeface Eadui (2010), a reproduction of English Caroline Minuscule as written by Eadui Basan, a scribe at eleventh-century Christ Church, Canterbury.
  • Elstob (2018-2019). A variable font for for medievalists. He writes: The Elstob font, named for Elizabeth Elstob (1683-1756), a celebrated early scholar of Old English language and literature, is based on the Double Pica commissioned by Bishop John Fell (1625-1686) for the use of the Oxford University Press. Wherever possible, it is modeled on a specimen book printed in 1925 with type cast in the 1890s from the seventeenth-century matrices; digital images from the 1693 and 1706 Fell specimen books served as backup, and also an early eighteenth-century folio in which a lengthy dedication was printed in Fell's Double Pica. The type doesn't have a great reputation: the typographer Stanley Morison thought it amateurish in comparison with the excellent Fell English. However, its angular character (especially its flat or flattish serifs with minimal or no brackets) makes it well suited to adaptation as a variable font.
  • Interlace Set (2015). A dingbat font for making Hiberno-Saxon interlace patterns.
  • The important and well-designed Junius family (1996, modern hybrid Gaelic). This led to Junicode, the working name of a Unicode font for medievalists. The fonts in the latter project are Junicode-Bold, JunicodeItalic, Junicode (2002), and are by Peter S. Baker and Briery Creek Software. André G. Isaak writes: Junicode isn't the only free font for mediaevalists out there, but it's certainly one of the two most well-designed ones (the other being Andron Scriptor). I used to teach courses on the history of English and I used Junius (the predecessor of Junicode) for many of my handouts because I preferred it to all of the commercial fonts which I had looked at. In 2020, Junicode was rebuilt into JuniusX or Junicode New.

PR Fonts
[Peter Rempel]

Peter Rempel (b. 1958) is a Winnipeg-based calligrapher. Nice graphic about classical roman types. He designed some exquisite shareware fonts: PR Uncial Creepy (2010), PR Agamemnon Bold (2008), PR-Uncial (2003), PR-UncialAltCapsExtended, PR-UncialAlternateCapitals (1998), Demo-ofGabrielCondensed, Demo-ofGabrielRegular, Demo-version:Gabrielextended, PR-CelticNarrow (1998), Magickal Signs, PR Runes (2000), PR Rune Stones (2000), Pi Rho Runestones (1998), PR Astrological (1998), PR Compass Rose (2007), PR Viking (2007; +Alternates) and Pirho Herakles (1998, an Etruscan-style or Greek simulation font). In preparation: PR Alchemyst, PR Snaggly, PR Monk's Holiday.

He writes about himself: educated in music composition and visual design. In his family home, there were many wall plaques with German Bible verses, rendered in a variety of gothic and fraktur lettering styles. In the 1980s he discovered the art of calligraphy, first through the speedball lettering textbook, and later by joining the calligraphers Guild of Manitoba. He has studied a variety of lettering styles, but his strongest interest is in the letter styles of the Middle Ages, starting with the German Fraktur styles he knew from childhood, and extending back, into uncials, runic shapes, and the Classical Roman Letter. The Chancery cursive, or Italic hand, which to many people is synonymous with calligraphy, never held much interest for him. He released his first shareware fonts in 1996.

In 2010, he went partially commercial. His first pay font is PR Pointers (2010, an arrows font).

In 2011, he designed the commercial typefaces PR Mapping and PR Stars.

In 2012, he published PR Arco (arcs for framing curved lines of text, in a style common on Victorian posters and almanac covers) and PR Hydra (a Greek simulation font).

Typefaces from 2013 include PR Snowflakes 01, PR Bramble Wood 1 and 2, PR Valendoodle 01 (Valentine's Day ornaments), PR Swirlies (in series numbered 01 through 13), PR Swirlies Frames, PR HallowDoodles (Halloween dingbats), PR Nouveau Ornaments (art nouveau), PR Viking (a rune simulation face), PR Foxtail 01, PR Foxtail 02, PR Scrolls 03, 04 and 05 (2014), PR Sprucewood (2014), PR Swells One (2014), PR Xmas Doodles (2014), PR Hearts Take Wing 01, PR Mysticon 01 (star dingbats), PR Pointers 01 (arrows), PR Valknut (Norse god symbolism), PR Scrolls, PR Uncial (1998), PR Dim Sum (brush face), PR Columban (a Celtic uncial, named after Irish monk Columbanus), PR Columbian.

Typefaces from 2014: PR Cauldron (a scary Celtic style font), Vanaheim (a flared display typeface influenced by Nordic runes).

Typefaces from 2015: PR Hallow Doodles 03, PR Ex Cathedra (Trajan capitals).

Runic World Tamgaci
[Osman Nuri Alkan]

Gumushane, Turkey, and Gothenburg, Sweden-based designer of fonts developed based on old European runic inscriptions, old Asian runic inscriptions, old Hungarian runic inscriptions, runic inscriptions found in Africa, and italic inscriptions such as Etruscan and Iberian. Typefaces from 2022: Ongunkan All Runic Unicode A (a major font that covers Latin, Old Hungarian, Old Turkic, Old Italic, runic, Tifinagh, Lycian, Lydian, Carian, Phoenician, Cypriot, Ogham, Old South Arabian, Old North Arabian, Old Persian, and Ugaritic), Ongunkan Phrygian, Ongunkan Armanen Runes (a series of 18 runes, closely based on the historical Younger Futhark, introduced by Austrian mysticist and Germanic revivalist Guido von List in his Das Geheimnis der Runen, published as a periodical article in 1906, and as a standalone publication in 1908), Ongunkan Danish Futhark (he explains: Prior to 500 AD the 24-rune Elder Futhark was used in Denmark. From 500 AD to 800 AD there were many transitional futharks, reflecting a change from the 24-rune Futhark to the 16-rune Futharks. By the end of this period, the 24-rune Futhark went completely out of use and the 16-rune Futharks had prevailed.), Ongunkan Gothenburg Futhark Swe (based on the 26-letter Bohuslän runes, which are used in the west coast area), Ongunkan Latin Space, Ongunkan Latin Techno, Ongunkan Norwegian Futhark (he explains: The oldest runes discovered in Norway date from 400 AD. They were based upon the 24-rune Elder Futhark of Germanic origin. Two of the runes in the Elder Futhark, Pertra and Eoh, have never been found in any Norwegian rune text. From 550 AD to 700 AD there was a transition period between the older 24-rune Futhark and the newer 16-rune Futharks. By the end of this period, the 24-rune Futhark went completely out of use and the 16-rune Futharks had prevailed. About 900 AD, the Shorttwiggs-runes were introduced from Sweden. Shortly thereafter, from 1000 AD, Futharks with more than 16 runes became more prevalent, as these were more consistent with the Latin alphabet. These types of runes were used in Norway up to 1800 AD), Ongunkan Anglo Saxon Spirit, Ongunkan Younger Futhark One, Ongunkan Younger Futhark (he explains: The Younger Futhark, also called Scandinavian runes, is a runic alphabet and a reduced form of the Elder Futhark, with only 16 characters, in use from about the 9th century, after a transitional period during the 7th and 8th centuries. The reduction, somewhat paradoxically, happened at the same time as phonetic changes that led to a greater number of different phonemes in the spoken language, when Proto-Norse evolved into Old Norse. Also, the writing custom avoided carving the same rune consecutively for the same sound, so the spoken distinction between long and short vowels was lost in writing. Thus, the language included distinct sounds and minimal pairs that were written the same. The Younger Futhark is divided into long-branch (Danish) and short-twig (Swedish and Norwegian) runes; in the 10th century, it was further expanded by the "Hälsinge Runes" or staveless runes. The lifetime of the Younger Futhark corresponds roughly to the Viking Age. Their use declined after the Christianization of Scandinavia; most writing in Scandinavia from the 12th century was in the Latin alphabet, but the runic scripts survived in marginal use in the form of the medieval runes (in use ca. 1100-1500) and the Latinised Dalecarlian runes (ca. 1500-1910)), Ongunkan Fantastic Latin, Ongunkan Modern Latin, Ongunkan Sweden Futhark, Ongunkan Sweden Dalecarlian Run (a late version of the runic script that was in use in the Swedish province of Dalarna until the 20th century), Ongunkan Sweden Dalecarlian Run, Ongunkan Old Turkic Yenisei (based on the Yenisei inscriptions, which consist of a total of 158 Turkish inscriptions, kurgans (graves) and rock stones that have been found along the Yenisei river, which passes through the Khakasya, Tuva and Altai autonomous republics in Russia. The inscriptions were written with Turkish stamps, also known as the Orkhon Alphabet), Ongunkan Old Turkic Arrival (based on an alien language in the science fiction movie called Arrival), Ongunkan Old Turkic Predator (old Turksih runic; based on alien script from the Fantastic Predator movie), Ongunkan Runic Predator (runic; based on alien script from the Fantastic Predator movie), Ongunkan Runic, Ongunkan Greek Script, Ongunkan Karamanli Turkic Scrip (based on the Greek alphabet used by the Karamanli Turks (who are Orthodox Christians) and adapted to Turkish), Ongunkan Kensington Runestone (a rune-covered slab of brownstone that was claimed to have been discovered in central Minnesota in the United States in 1898; probably a hoax perpetrated by its discoverer, Olof Öhman), Ongunkan Old Hungarian Runic (used in parts of Transylvania until the 1850s; banned by Istvan, the first Christian king of the Hungarians (Szekel)), Ongunkan Rosetta Stone (ancient Greek as seen on Egypt's rosetta stone), Ongunkan Tifinagh Berber.

Runological projects at NCCH

Espen S. Ore is the project leader at Norwegian Computing Centre for the Humanities, Bergen, Norway. As part of this work a database comprising the runic inscriptions at the Historic Museum in Bergen will be built. Other runes will be added, and plans are to expand the search to Sweden and Denmark as well. Anne.Haavaldsen is another runologist heading the project. The steering committee consists of professors Helge J.J. Dyvik, Odd Einar Haugen and Richard H. Pierce of the University of Bergen. Included is the Gullskoen font (Odd Einar Haugen (University of Bergen, Department of Scandinavian languages and literature, Sydnesplassen 7, 5007 Bergen, Norway) and Gullhornet. [Google] [More]  ⦿

SIAS (or: Signographical Institute Andreas Stötzner)
[Andreas Stötzner]

Andreas Stötzner (b. 1965, Leipzig) is a type designer who lives in Pegau, Saxony. Graduate from the Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst Leipzig and the Royal College of Art in London (1994).

The Andron project intends to extend this Venetian text typeface in many directions: right now, it covers Latin, Greek, Coptic, Gothic, runes, Cyrillic, Etruscan and Irish scripts, musical symbols, astronomical and meteorological symbols, and many dingbats. The Andron MC Corpus series (2012) contains Uncial, Mediaeval and Capital styles. He also created Andron 1 Monetary (2014), Andron 1 Alchemical and Andron 2 ABC (2014, for children's literature).

On or before 2006, he created a few typefaces for Elsner & Flake. These include EF Beautilities, EF Ornamental Rules, EF Squares, EF Topographicals, EF Typoflorals, EF Typographicals, EF Typomix, EF Typosigns, EF Typospecs, EF Typostuff.

Rosenbaum (2012) is a festive blackletter face, obtained by mixing in didone elements.

In 2013, he published Arthur Cabinet, a six-style inline art deco caps collection of typefaces, with accompanying Arthur Ornaments and Arthur Sans. Meanwhile, Andron Mega grew to 14,700 unicode glyphs in 2013.

Typefaces from 2014: Behrens Ornaments (art nouveau ornaments based on Behrens Schuck by Peter Behrens, 1914), Fehlian (an open capitals typeface family with Plain, Gravur and Precious styles), Happy Maggie (a hand-drawn script based on Maggie's sketches when she was 13 years old), Abendschroth (for lullabies, girl's literature, murder poems, short stories and Christmas gift books), Abendschroth Scriptive, Albyona English No. 1 (as Andreas writes, suitable for children's books, fantasy literature, crime novels, natural food packaging and poison labeling, for infancy memories, vanitas kitsch items, dungeon museum bar menu cards, introductions to herbalism and witchcraft manuals), Lindau (a Venetian Jensonian typeface with considerable flaring in the ascenders), Grund (based on the 1924 art deco signage in Leipzig's Untergrundmesshalle Markt whose architect was Otto Droge), Leipziger Ornamente (based on variopus buildings in Gohlis, Leipzig, dating from the 1920s-1950s), Kaukasia Albanisch (ancient writing system of the Caucasus region, allegedly created by Mesrop Mashtots who also invented the Armenian alphabet in 405).

Storm Type Foundry
[Frantisek Storm]

Storm Type is a major Czech foundry that offers the inspiring work of Frantisek Storm (b. 1966, Prague). Most typefaces are made by Storm himself. The typefaces:

  • Aaahoj: a ransom note font.
  • Abald (2005): Abald adds to the number of "bad-taste" alphabets as seen on faded commercial inscriptions painted on neglected old houses.
  • Academica: Josef Týfa first published Academia in 1967-68. It was the winning design in a competition for scientific typefaces, announced by Grafotechna. It was cut and cast in metal in 1968 in 8 and 10 point sizes in plain, italic and semi-bold designs. In 2003 Josef Týfa and Frantisek Storm began to work on its digital version. The new name Academica distinguishes the digital execution (and modifications) from the original Academia. In 2021, Frantisek Storm added Academica Sans.
  • Aichel: originally designed for use in architecture (in this particular case for a UNESCO memorial plaque for a church built by Jan Santini-Aichel on Zelenà Hora). It has a stone-chiseled look.
  • Alcoholica
  • Alebrije (2015). A 42-cut exaggerated cocaine-driven typeface family with instantly recognizable v and w that have slabs on their baselines.
  • Amor Sans and Amor Serif (2005).
  • Amphibia (2016). A lapidary typeface family.
  • Andulka (2004): 24 weights for use in books, mags and newspapers. Extended in 2011 to Andulka Sans.
  • Antique Ancienne, Moderne&Regent (2000): Baroque typefaces.
  • Anselm Sans and Serif (2007): 20 styles about which Storm writes The ancestry of Anselm goes back to Jannon, a slightly modified Old Style Roman. I drew Serapion back in 1997, so its spirit is youthful, a bit frisky, and it is charmed by romantic, playful details. Anselm succeeds it after ten years of evolution, it is a sober, reliable laborer, immune to all eccentricities. It won an award for superfamily at TDC2 2008. It covers Greek as well.
  • Areplos (2005): Based on Jan Solpera's 1982 typeface with serifs on top and serifless at the bottom.
  • Bahnhof: poster typeface from the 1930s.
  • Baskerville Original Pro (2010) comprising Baskerville 10 Pro, Baskerville 10 Cyr, JBaskerville, and JBaskerville Text. This is an important and thoroughly studied execution starting from photographs of prints from Baskerville's printing office, ca. 1760.
  • Beletrio and Beletria (2018). Beletria (26 styles) is intended as a modern book type. Beletrio is a peaceful accompanying sans.
  • Bhang (2011) is a flat brush signage family of exceptional balance.
  • Biblon (2000; note: ITC Biblon is a watered down version of Biblon, so please go for the original, not the ITC version). Biblon Pro (2006) is even better; 6 weights.
  • Briefmarken (2008): letters that look dented like postage stamps.
  • The 64-style Carot type system (2020), which consists of Carot Sans, Carot Display, Carot Slab and Carot Text.

  • Digita (2004)
  • Dracula (2017). A great blackletter family.
  • Dynamo Grotesk (1995): Storm's 60-weight sans family going back to the early sans traditions. In 2009, this was updated to Dyna Grotesk Pro.
  • Enamelplate (2011).
  • Etelka (2005, 42 styles): a corporate identity sans family, which became commercial in 2006. Four Etelka Monospace styles were added in 2008. Etelka Sans and Etelka Slab were released in 2019.
  • Evil
  • Excelsior Script (1995-1996), perhaps renamed Excelsor Script around 2000.

  • Fenix 21 through 23 (2010): An elliptical sans family that includes a hairline (21).

  • JohnBaskerville (2000)
  • JohnSans (2001, a 72-weight sans version of Baskerville)

  • Juvenis (2003)
  • Kompressor: techno typeface

Storm and Marek Pistora after a huge sans design from 1973 by Jiri Rathousky, which was commissioned by the Transport Company of the Capital City of Prague in 1970 to be used in the information system of the Prague Metro. In 1986, the metro started using Helvetica): this typeface is eminently readable!
  • Modell: techno
  • Monarchia [The Monarchia family, consisting of three designs, is a transcription of "Frühling" of the German type designer Rudolf Koch, enriched by a bold and text design]
  • Moyenage (2008): a 25-style blackletter family for Latin and Cyrillic, almost an experiment in blackletter design and flexibility. Winning entry at Paratype K2009.
  • Mramor (1988-2013). A roman caps typeface with lower case added. Storm: The text designs are discontinued since they were replaced by the related Amor Serif family (along with its -sans version). Even so, ten display styles are left.
  • Negro
  • Ohrada: condensed upper case

  • Quercus Whiteline, Quercus 10, Quercus Serif, and Quercus Sans (2015). Four large families, created for informational and magazine design, corporate identity and branding. The sans has a Gill flavor.
  • Regula Text and Regula Old Face. Regula is named after the secular monastic order Regula Pragensis. Initially, the digitized font (regular old Face, which is now free) had jagged edges and a rather narrow range of applications until the summer of 2009, when Storm added text cuts. Regula was a baroque alphabet faithfully taken over from a historical model including its inaccuracies and uneven letter edges.
  • Rondka (2001)
  • Sebastian (2003, a sans with a funky italic), about which he writes: Sans-serif typefaces compensate for their basic handicap---an absence of serifs---with a softening modulation typical of roman typefaces. Grotesques often inherit a hypertrophy of the x-height, which is very efficient, but not very beautiful. They are like dogs with fat bodies and short legs. More# Why do we love old Garamonds? Beside beautifully modeled details, they possess aspect-ratios of parts within characters that timelessly and beauteously parallel the anatomy of the human body. Proportions of thighs, arms or legs have their universal rules, but cannot be measured by pixels and millimeters. These sometimes produce almost unnoticeable inner tensions, perceptible only very slowly, after a period of living with the type. Serifed typefaces are open to many possibilities in this regard; when a character is mounted on its edges with serifs, what is happening in between is more freely up to the designer. In the case of grotesques, everything is visible; the shape of the letter must exist in absolute nakedness and total simplicity, and must somehow also be spirited and original.
  • Serapion (a Renaissance-Baroque Roman typeface with more contrast than Jannon)
  • SerapionII (2002-2003): early Baroque
  • Solpera (digitization of a type of Jan Solpera, 2000)
  • SplendidOrnamenty (1998, a formal script font)
  • Splendid Quartett: an Antiqua, a sans, a bold and a script. Stor writes: The script was freely transcribed from the pattern-book of the New York Type Foundry from 1882, paying regard to numerous other sources of that period.
  • St Croce (2014). Based on worn-out lettering on tombstones in the St. Croce Basilica in Florence, this is a flared lightly stenciled typeface family.
  • Technomat (2006): this typeface takes inspiration from matrix or thermal dot printers.
  • Tenebra: a combination of the Baroque inscriptional majuscule with decorative calligraphic elements and alchemistic symbols
  • Teuton (2001): a severe sans family inspired by an inscription on one German tomb in the Sudetenland
  • Traktoretka
  • Trivia Sans (2012), Trivia Serif (2012, a didone), Trivia Serif 10 (2012), Trivia Grotesk (2012, 48 cuts), Trivia Gothic (2013), Trivia Slab (2012), and Trivia Humanist (2013, a strong wedge serif family: I wanted a clear and majestic typeface for book jackets, LP cover designs, posters, exhibition catalogues and shorter texts).
  • Tusar (2004): a digitization of a type family by Slavoboj Tusar from 1926
  • Tyfa ITC + Tyfa Text: Designed by Josef Týfa in 1959, digitized by F. Storm in 1996.
  • Vida Pro (2005), a big sans family designed for TV screens. Vida Stencil Demo is free.
  • Walbaum Text (2002). Walbaum 10 Pro (2010) and Walbaum 120 Pro (2010) are extensive (and gorgeous!) didone families, the latter obtained from the former by optical thinning. Storm quips: I only hope that mister Justus Erich won't pull me by the ear when we'll meet on the other side. Advertised as a poster sans family, he offers Walbaum Grotesk Pro (2011).
  • Wittingau (2016). A wonderful decorative blackletter typeface family, with a great set of Wittingau Symbols.
  • Zeppelin (2000): a display grotesk
This foundry cooperates in its revivals with experienced Czech designers Ottokar Karlas, Jan Solpera and Josef Týfa.

The Briar (was: Alphabets Magical, or: Fuzzypeg's Homepage)
[Ben Whitmore]

Alphabets Magical had freeware rune and old writing system fonts by Ben Whitmore from Auckland, New Zealand. They included AngelicR100, BarddasWRR100, DaggersR100, IEFutharkR100, Malachim, PVEnochian100, PWRunesR100, ThebanBW100, AlphGeniiFzpg100, Enochian-Regular, PictSwirlR100. He also had Enochian-Regular by the Digital Type Foundry, 1991.

In 2014, we rediscovered Ben Whitmore as The Briar. He published Coelacanth, a free typeface family inspired by Bruce Rogers' legendary Venetian typeface, Centaur, described by some as the most beautiful typeface ever designed. He writes: There are surprisingly few digital revivals of Centaur, and none that I know of providing the smaller optical sizes that were available in the original metal type. Centaur was tremendously versatile, as elegant and readable in the smallest caption text as it was at display sizes. He created the italics from scratch. Interestingly, Coelacanth has six weights from Thin to Heavy, and six optical styles, 4pt, 6pt, 8pt, 14pt, 24pt and 60pt. CTAN link for downloading Coelacanth.

Timberwolf Type
[Lars Bergquist]

Lars Bergquist is the Swedish type designer (b. 1936) who runs Timberwolf Type in Sollentuna, just outside Stockholm. Bergquist designed numerous successful text families and display typefaces, including the free Beryll typeface. In 2016, the collection moved over to (was bought by?) 3IP. Some offerings:

  • Old Style romans: Sarabande (1998; based on Jean Jannon's famous "Garamond" of 1621), Pavane (1998, based on a text typeface by Rudolf Koch), Philomela (2000, also at PsyOps), Montrachet (2002, Fountain: a garalde family), Monteverdi (Fountain: with Granjon's Plantin Ascendonica italic).
  • Baroque/transitional: Leyden, Leyden News (PsyOps, 2000), Baskerville 1757 and Baskerville Caps (1998; winner of a Bukvaraz award in 2001, available at Type Quarry).
  • New Style Romans: Millennium, Eleonora (1999), Prospero (1998, a didone family), Waldstein (2003, Fountain: a Scotch typeface).
  • Sans typefaces: Millennium, Millennium Sans, Millennium Linear, New Millennium, New Millennium Sans and New Millennium Linear (2000).
  • Display typefaces: Diorite (2005, a calligraphic angular family), Corsiva Italica (2003), Paracelsus (2003, Fountain: a modern version of Schwabach), Foliant Blackletter (German 15th C Textur), Zeppelin Bauhaus Gothic, Berserk Scandinavian runes, Escorial (at PsyOps), Paestum (2001, a Greek simulation family), Sekhmet (2000), Praetorian, Pressroom (2003), Proconsular, Palaestra (the latter three are inspired by informal, painted Roman wall writing), Triumphalis Caps (also inspired by Roman imperial inscriptions), Bucintoro (1999, a modern version of the rotunda blackletter), Midnight (2000; a neon light/ blackboard bold family), Karolin Fraktur (at Psy/Ops: Fraktur modeled after the Bible of King Charles XII, printed in Stockholm in 1703), Rococo Titling (2001, ornate titling caps based on work done by Jacques-François Rosart (1714-1777) and Pierre Simon Fournier (1712-1768), and the Renaissance family Ronsard (at PsyOps, 2000).
Some fonts are available at Fountain, Psy/Ops and Type Quarry. Bukvaraz gave him an award for Absolut Type, a classic Renaissance family, so I wonder if that is not the same as Baskerville 1757. Lars says that Absolute Vodka complained, so the type is sold by Psy/Ops as Aalborg (2002). He published Whitenights at Linotype in 2003. FontShop link. Klingspor link. [Google] [MyFonts] [More]  ⦿

Specifically, this package provides support for writing English, Quenya, and Sindarin with tengwar and cirth/angerthas. It also provides support for writing Dwarvish with cirth, Quenya with sarati and valmaric letters, and English with Anglo-Saxon runes, as used in The Hobbit. It supports the use of the fonts Tengwar Annatar, Cirth Erebor, Sarati Eldamar, Valmaric Eldamar, and can be easily edited to support Tengwar Eldamar, Tengwar Parmaite, Tengwar Noldor, Tengwar Quenya, and Tengwar Sindarin.

Wintertree Software
[Jean McGuire]

Programmer and gamer based in Aiken, SC. Designer of the commercial font package Arcane Alphabets and the free font Instahex. These typefaces go back to ca. 1997, but updates have been made until 2019. . Purchase fonts here:

  • Albrecht. An ornate blackletter based on work by the German Renaissance artist Albrecht Dürer.
  • Babington. The cipher famously used by Mary, Queen of Scots, when she was imprisoned by and plotting to overthrow her cousin Elizabeth I, which cost her her life.
  • Blaise. A collection of three cipher fonts, Blaise, Blaise Round, and Blaise Block.
  • Celestia.
  • Coelbren. Named after Coelbren y Beirdd, the purported bards' alphabet of Wales.
  • Cowboy. A cipher font based on authentic cattle brands from the Old West.
  • Crowley, a font based on Aleister Crowley's Alphabet of Daggers.
  • DarkCity, a font for making city skylines.
  • EasyHex ad InstaHex (a free font from 1997). Eighty-six hex paper fonts for gamers.
  • Enochian.
  • Etruscan.
  • Gold Bug. Based on the cipher used by Edgar Allan Poe in his classic story "The Gold-Bug."
  • Grimoire. This package consists of three fonts, two of which date to the Renaissance era and the third of which was created in a similar style specifically for gaming use. Theban is sometimes called "the alphabet of the witches" and is still in use today to keep writing safe from prying eyes. Magi is derived from the Writing of the Mages, another Renaissance-era alphabet, this one based on Hebrew, with a unique look. Magehand was designed specifically for gaming use, based on Theban and other real-world secret and magical alphabets. It has the general look and feel of the two real ones without actually being them.
  • Hieroglyphic Borders.
  • Hieroglyphica. Egyptian hieroglyphs.
  • Illuminati. A cipher font based on a secret alphabet supposedly used by the Illuminati.
  • Lycian. The Lycians were ancient residents of Anatolia, and they wrote with an alphabet which had much in common with Greek, but also differed in many ways, as their language had many different sounds.
  • Nug-Soth. A cipher font.
  • Ogham. Ogham is an ancient Irish writing system.
  • Oukoine: Many ancient alphabets are derived from Phoenician by way of ancient Greek. They are not, however, all from the same version of ancient Greek. Just as the language (Koine) had local dialects, the alphabet did too. Different letters were used in Athens, Crete, and other Greek city-states. Eventually the Ionian version became the common alphabet for the Greek world, from which the modern Greek k alphabet developed. Our own, however, came from the Euboean variant, which was used by the Etruscans and then, as with so much Etruscan culture and technology, the Romans. This explains, for example, the reason both the "C" and the "G" of the Roman alphabet look so little like the gamma of the Greek alphabet: it's not derived from that Greek alphabet.
